Thank you for joining me in this cause!
From May 31st - June 6th 2020, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I’ll be a Roadie!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.
Spend some quality time with this oral history from the UC Berkeley Library! news.lib.berkeley.edu/sounds-past-podcast-series-oral-history-center-digs-archive-tell-story-about-aids-epidemic
It does a fantastic job of recounting the early aka ugly days of the epidemic. Stigma, discrimination and fear ruled the day. In fact, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence came together as a group to provide care to people suffering from AIDS. The costumes arose from fear of being targeted if their identities were on display.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS and the fear and stigma around it a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
